The food was great, the happy hour beverages were fantastic, and Lou (the gal from Argentina) was out of this world! Great experience all around and we will definitely be back especially if Lou is bar tending!

Authentic Indian Restaurant Near Downtown Denver


The restaurant is operated by the Baidwan family. The Baidwan family have been living in Colorado for more than 20 years now, and their love and passion for cooking led them to open the Little India Bar & Restaurant in 1998. It has enjoyed stellar success throughout its existence in both 6th Avenue and Downing Street. The success is greatly due to the restaurant employing highly skilled chefs that began their careers in North India and cook authentic and finger-licking delicious Indian food. The herbs and spices are imported directly from India and the bread is made in the authentic style using a Tandoor oven. Everything, from the interior and ambiance of the place to the music played and hospitality and friendliness of the staff takes one on a journey through India. Where other restaurants bring a part of India with them, Little India Restaurant & Bar brings the entire nation to you.
